The Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum is hosting “If These Cars Could Talk” Saturday July 2, 2022 from 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm 1936 CORD 810 (MOONSHADOW) The given name of this Cord 810 Westchester sedan is “Moonshadow,” due to its distinguished silvery-blue finish and original blue English broadcloth interior. It has been highly praised and recognized in several car shows.  In its November 2002 issue, which celebrated the 100th anniversary of the American automobile, Forbes’ American Heritage magazine chose Moonshadow as “The Single Most Beautiful American Car.” This Cord 810 is powered by a 289 cubic-inch V-8 engine, with an advertised 125 horsepower rating.  In reality, according to factory dynamometer testing, it produced 117 horsepower.  It features the Cord hallmark front-wheel drive system with a four-speed transmission.  The cost when new was $1,995, a hefty sum when compared with its contemporaries of similar size. The presentation is included with regular admission to the museum.

TOMMY MILTON: RACECAR DRIVER EXTRAORDINAIRE Tommy Milton was a very successful racecar driver with a storied career.
